My Mother passed away in 2007 and my brother and I were 50/50 beneficaries on all of her accounts. Life Ins, Bonds, Checking Accts.
The problem is my brother went ahead and filed her Taxes and did not split 50/50 like rest of her accounts. How do I go about getting 50%. He still owes my for half of funeral costs as well. How is or was he able to file her taxes without my signature or me? There was no will, did not go to court for probate and there was NO executor on her estate. What can I do. IRS wont give my copy of her taxes that my brother filed. I'm trying Freedom of Information to get copy. I just need exact amounts of Checks (Tax Refund and Stumilus Check Refund) so i can add to other total for small claims. Any HELP would be GREATLY appreciated
